The golden string of beads.

The golden string of beads will come to life eventually.

I'll make this story short and "antique". LOL. I purchased this container of a continuous string of beads more years ago than I can exactly remember. (at least 20) At that time, of course, I, as most crafters do, had great plans to cut the string of golden beads into various as needed lengths, and use them to embellish many wonderful handcrafted items. Well !!!

I found this container last week while looking through some long lost stacked up crafting boxes.

One point worth mentioning is that the store from where this item was purchased has long, long ago gone out of business. (but I still have THEIR beads and still maintain the strongest intention to use them in some gotta have hot new items)

Mind you, that my family would have long ago thrown them and much of my other crafting supplies out to the curb, were it not for my constant rebelling.

Moral of the story is: Never leave your noncrafting minded family in charge of your long lost crafting items; for one day for sure, you will find those long lost items and make NEW PLANS to bring them to life once again.


  1. wow...over 20're lucky you ever found them again...I think if I had gold beads they wouldn't last that long as the kids would end up wearing them.

  2. I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who buys stuff with the intentions of making something only to let said item When my husband and I got married 4 years ago he was complaining about my crafty mess. My daughter (25 year old) said, doesn't he know that in a crafty house crafty people need crafty

  3. Interesting story... ;)

    I love the photo of the squirrel sitting on your pecan tree! it´s so cute!

  4. Thanks ladies. I hope to get around to making something with these soon. Will post photos of completed item for sure.

    That squirrel was the cutest sitting there eating. I just couldn't resist taking the photo.

  5. Too funny. I always tell my kids that when I die, not to just send everything to Goodwill...there are treasures amongst all of this stuff!
